Transformation Stories – 2017

Leading up to the 2017 Biennial Mission Summit, we want to hear from YOU! Do you have a story of transformation in your local church or community? Tell us about it! Transformation Stories are invited for submission through June 15, 2017. The goal of the Transformation Stories coming out of the Transformed by the Spirit initiative is to create a sharing community to support the work of the local church as it Joins God in the Neighborhood and grows through partnership in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. By sharing your Transformation Story, you may encourage other local churches to: experiment in transformative ministry; share their own ministry stories; and build interest by using social networking and interaction. (Before the 2015 Biennial Mission Summit, we invited American Baptists from across the country to share their Ministry Stories with the American Baptist Family and with the world.)
